Wireless flash triggering

I use an E500 and E510 with FL36(non wireless version). I want to fire off camera flash but find the extension cord too limiting. I do not want to use the pop up flash to trigger a photocell trigger. Can anyone recommend some sort of hot shoe transmitter/receiver setup to allow me to do this?

Re: Wireless flash triggering

You just need a transmitter and a receiver the cheapest set I have seen is this:

OR

You can buy the two parts seperatly

I thought these systems were for studio flash setups. I only want to fire my lowly FL36.

Studio flash, FL36 flash... same thing really, they can get fired in the same manner.

This is a good piece of kit, especially for 11.99. You've been given good advice.
